Creative Friday!

custom blue rose crown

I have had a lot of fun making these custom birthday crowns for my shop!
I love using organic- fair-trade and naturally plant dyed materials for my work. I really think that the ethical natural and quality of materials brings a warmth and love through the very fibres of the work itself.

I also love the way a design will almost dream itself into being. 
 I get a vision of the design and the work and know exactly what colours to use in an intuitive way.
 It seems that the best things almost "dream" themselves into being!

Joy is an essential ingredient to creative work.
 You can tell when something is made with joy and of pure, natural fabrics, it is so different to handle and touch than anything that has been mass produced.
It holds a different quality and carries a different energy.

  1. Oh, those crowns are so lovely!
    I want to embellish my children's, somehow (they have just their first initial stitched into the front); I always intended to add something else—I was thinking a little something every year, but here we are at almost 4 and almost 3 and all they have are the initials. I need to change that.
    You've inspired me. Thank you. xo

  2. The crowns are lovely. I love the little girl/angel on the second one holding the flower. Beautiful. And I love the colours you chose for the felted doll with the wooden head. She is gorgeous.

  3. suzy you are just so creative!

  4. Really lovely crowns. Very special.
